Instructions

Place this collar around the dog's neck, adjust for proper fit and buckle in place. Cut off and dispose of excess length. Do not allow dogs to play with cut-off excess. The collar must be worn tightly enough to contact skin and so that the dog cannot remove it. Activity against ticks starts within 24 hours and continues as long as the collar is worm (up to 90 days). Ticks present in the dog's environment that may reappear on the dog will not attach and will be killed in less than 24 hours. Replace collar when effectiveness diminishes. The effectiveness of the collar is not diminished by normal wetting such as rainfall, however, it is suggested that the collar be removed before bathing. This product does not control fleas.

  • Best tick collar ---- EVER

    By on

    We have hunting breeds who frequent woods, brush, and high grasses. This collar will keep ticks off your pet!!! Paralyzing the tick's mouth to prevent it from biting and attaching. Ticks fall off dead or near dead. Good news for people and cats living in the home!

  • product is overrated

    By on

    Instructions for collar indicate it must come in contact with the dog's skin. So on a long haired dog how exactly is that done? Answer - it can't be done. After two weeks I have not noticed any improvement for tick protection on either of my dogs.

  • Sizing is off.....

    By on

    The sizing is not very accurate on this product. We have a medium mixed breed who weighs about 50 lbs. We ordered the recommended size and it does not even come close to fitting around her neck. I went back to try to order the next larger size and it is out of stock. Frustrating.

  • Can't beat it

    By on

    It's reasonable and it's effective. Before using this collar my dog was on nexguard and I would still pick a tick or two off the puppy each night. We live in a tick hotbed and the doggy loves to play in bushes and tall grass. Since we have been using this collar I have not seen one tick on the pooch. Can't be it in combo with nexguard.

  • What the Vet recommended

    By on

    I was at a large retail pet store and spoke with the veterinary staff. I asked which tick collar was the best. They recommended the VIRBAC. I asked them where to find it in the store. They told me the store did not carry the collar. I located it on Chewy.com and have been very happy with the performance. Ticks will no longer attach. This is a great product.

  • Jury is still out...

    By on

    I specifically bought this collar because it is supposed to work well with K9 Advantix II topical. I still found a few ticks on my dog, but not as many as with just the Advantix. Most of them have been either dead or dying (1 or 2 live ones so far), but I probably won't repurchase. I live in New England, which has an enormous tick population. So perhaps it's just not strong enough for my area.

  • great collars

    By on

    I got these last summer and reordered for this summer. We have had terrible ticks in Ms lately and in spite of the advantage I use the ticks crawled on my dogs. So I added this collar and the ticks just dropped off! And my dogs were tick free the whole summer! I also treat the yard area with tick granules. We live around lots of woods and pastures. The only problem I had was a puppy who took delight in chewing the collars off the other dogs. I noticed the price went up this year. Bummer but I really needed them!

  • This is a great collar

    By on

    I have been using these collars for about 10 years. I have Jack Russells, and pointers, and I live in a really tick infested part of the area. These collars work.

  • Good so far

    By on

    Been working along with another flea and tick control. Seems to be helping since I still found ticks on her before using it. Brings me peace of mind.
